I died it My Way, Frank’s funeral No1

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

FRANK Si­na­tra’s My Way topped a funeral song chart, ahead of Time To Say Good­bye Over The Rain­bow Eva Cas­sidy.

A study of 2,000 adults by Co-op Funer­al­care showed in­creas­ing num­bers of peo­ple hav­ing a playlist ready for their funeral.

Two out of five said they wanted to “raise a laugh” at their funeral, ex­plain­ing why Monty Python’s Al­ways Look On The Bright Side Of Life re­mains one of the most pop­u­lar songs, with one in 10 say­ing they would con­sider The Jam’s Go­ing Un­der­ground.

A list of the most pop­u­lar funeral songs by pop artists in­cluded Rob­bie Wil­liams, West­life, Adele and Ri­hanna.

Liver­pool FC’s You’ll Never Walk Alone is top of the sport cat­e­gory, hav­ing over­taken the Match Of The Day theme tune, and pop­u­lar soap Corona­tion Street’s theme tune is top of the funeral TV charts.
